Report: Tennessee to name Worley its starting QB

The Sports Xchange

Tennessee coach Butch Jones said he would name his starting quarterback on Monday, and reported the choice is Justin Worley.

Worley was the backup to Tyler Bray the past two seasons, and was the only one of the four players competing for the starting job who had game experience.

Redshirt freshman Nathan Peterman and true freshmen Riley Ferguson and Josh Dobbs were the other three players competing to be the starter for the season opener against Austin Peay.

Last season, Worley completed 15 of 23 passes with no touchdowns and two interceptions in five games, none of which he started.
